Another Classic!

It has been raining hard in the Mississippi Valley, and the rising river begins to threaten all manner of private homes, including that of the local Reverend.

With water coming into the ground floor, a rowboat with police comes by, and the officer shouts, “Reverend, let us evacuate you! The water level is getting dangerous.”

The Reverend replies, “No thank you, I am a righteous man, who trusts in the Almighty, and I am confident he will deliver me.” Three hours go by, and the rains intensify, at which point the Reverend is forced up to the second floor of his house. A second police rowboat comes by, and the officer shouts, “Reverend, let us evacuate you! The water level is getting dangerous.”

The Reverend replies, “No thank you, I am a righteous man, who trusts in the Almighty, and I am confident he will deliver me.”

The rain does not stop, and the Reverend is forced up onto the roof of his house. A helicopter flies over, and the officer shouts down, “Reverend, grab the rope and we’ll pull you up! You’re in terrible danger!”

The Reverend replies, “No thank you, I am a righteous man, who trusts in the Almighty, and I am confident he will deliver me.”
The deluge continues, and the Reverend is swept off the roof, carried away in the current and drowns. He goes up to heaven, and at the Pearly Gates he is admitted, and comes before the Divine Presence.

The Reverend asks, “Dear Lord, I don’t understand. I’ve been a righteous observant person my whole life, and depended on you to save me in my hour of need. Where were you?”

And the Lord answered, “I sent two boats and a helicopter, what more did you want?”
